We always feel so lucky to have families spending their Christmas and New Year celebrations with us on Lembongan. This year we’ve got a huge Christmas tree in Hai Bar & Grill and the entire restaurant is decorated with Christmas lights and baubles. And the team love getting in to the Christmas spirit too – they wear Santa hats at work!
This year we have a special menu for Christmas lunch and dinner, all your favourite Christmas foods on a set menu and of course the bar will be open serving beer, wine, and delicious and decadent cocktails!
And for New Year’s Eve we have a smaller select menu with lots of favourites including
barramundi, North Bali seafood soup, butterscotch and banana trifle, and walnut brownies. We’re also doing special prices on certain beers, cocktails and wines – it is New Year’s Eve after all!
This year has been a busy one for the Bali Hai family with so many developments in the business, new ventures like our Dive Centre in Menjangan, and new villas being built at Hai Tide Beach Resort. We’ve been actively involved in island and village life, organising events for Earth Day and participating in island clean ups.
It’s also been a year of reflection and sadness, with the treasured icon Yellow Bridge, that spanned the water between Lembongan and Ceningan, collapsing and taking loved ones with it. It changed so many families and in fact changed the islands tremendously, with many still coming to terms with the tragedy. The people of Lembongan and Ceningan have shown incredible strength and compassion for others and we’re wishing all the best for a new bridge and new year ahead for them all.
We’ve met so many people in 2016 and have loved taking you diving, snorkelling, banana boat riding, cruising….and of course we’re glad you enjoyed your time on beautiful Lembongan island. We hope to see you all again in 2017 and meet many more new friends as the year goes on.
Take care and have the most wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year!
